State income taxes

    The employees pay state income taxes based on where they work, and where they live (if they happen to live and work in different states).

    The location of their employer's headquarters is irrelevant.

    Say the company is headquartered in California and they buy a smaller company in Oregon. the employees who live and work in Oregon pay Oregon taxes.

    The state they actually work in.

    They pay the tax for their state. Each person pays the tax for where that person works. It does not matter where the company is.

    EXACTLY the same as they paid before the company was bought out.

    Where the employer is located isn't relevant.

    Where the employees actually work, and where they live if in a different state matters.

    Employees pay taxes in the states where they live and work.

    The state where they work and are paid.

    An employee always has tax withholdings in the state they work not the state they live, unless there is a reciprocity agreement between the states.

    The employee will need to complete a residence tax return for the state they live in and a non-resident tax return where they work in.

    Where they actually pay will be based on multiple factors.

    The income tax for the state they work in.
